With Liverpool losing to Red Star Belgrade at Rajko Mitic stadium and Thierry Henry’s things falling apart with his AS Monaco side.
Liverpool were beaten in Serbia on tuesday by the Serbian Super Liga giants 2 goals to nothing, much as their fans never expected. With the likes of Mane, Salah and Firmino making up the starting X1, fans weren’t expecting such result.
Red Star Belgrade fought their best to defend their 29 minute win, putting Liverpool in frustration.
Henry’s side on the other hand failed woefully, conceding 4 goals to nothing at home.
Monaco might have had a bad day but sure had a good time and game. The possession was theirs, as they controlled the game, but unfortunately, luck wasn’t on their side. That was Henry’s fifth match since taking over as Monaco’s manager after the sack of Jardim.
The Former Arsenal striker have not been able to record a win since he landed Stade Louis II as a coach. Meanwhile as a player, he scored 28 goals in 141 appearances for the club. Monaco is where he started his professional career in 1994 before leaving for Arsenal in 1999.
Maybe he should be given some time to build his team, since the team was already in flaws under the former manager.
